This study investigated treatment effects of Fast ForWord (FFW) Language to Reading in an adult with acquired dyslexia. FFW Language to Reading is an intensive computer training program which aims to improve many aspects of reading. In this single subject study, several important underlying processing and critical subskills of reading were assessed before, during, and after treatment. Although significant improvements were not found in spoken language, phonemic awareness, or reading comprehension, significant improvements were found in verbal working memory and in various aspects of word identification and word attack. Test results and implications are discussed relative to gains made on the FFW Language to Reading training tasks.
